Books don’t make authors rich. Neither do book-related products and services—unless the writer consistently uses marketing strategies. In today’s guest post, Kathleen Gage (@KathleenGage), an internationally recognized Internet marketing advisor, shares information on her favorite marketing tool—podcasts.

In a perfect world, every author would make millions of dollars with each book they write. In the real world, most authors make little, if any, money from their published work. The majority earn less than a living wage.

Jennifer Baker details the truth of an author’s earning potential in her post, Most Authors Don’t Make Money from Writing Alone. She writes:
